Part 3 of 3 Lectures:

Kierkegaard and the Crisis in Religion
Nietzsche and the Crisis in Philosophy
Sartre and the Crisis in Morality

Since it has not kept up with the results of science, the question arises, "Is philosophy worth pursuing?" Dr. Walter Kaufmann, in this examination of Sartre, suggests the breakdown of morals, institutionalized anonymity, permissiveness, and the population explosion have brought us to a crucial point of decision. This was forseen by the existentialists who did not share the vast optimism about scientific progress. The work of Sartre and Heidegger is contrasted along with a discussion of Jaspers and Tillich. He suggests both Sartre and Camus failed to alleviate the current moral vacuum. 1960

Subject: One of the best available lectures on existentiallism
In brief, Professor Kaufmann examines the existential tradition with clarity and deep insight. Certainly a great starting point for anyone with a curiosity and I would argue that there is enough insight to give anyone much to think about, regardless of how much exposure they have had to contemporary philosophy.
